there and ohio is important. >> yeah. i think that today the storm will have some positive impact for obama because he's going to be moving through the state with governor christie, a symbol of bipartisanship that will help both of them and being presidential and dealing with the storm. that sort of thing always helps an incumbent. but i think on balance, it's going to be a negative for obama for a couple of reasons. one is the democrats rely on early voting. a lot of their vote is sort of machine vote, like nursing homes or like union halls. they'll put their people in a bus and move them to a polling place and get them out. they rely on early voting for that. and it will be hard to do that in pennsylvania, virginia and a couple of other places. the other thing which is more important really is that whenever conditions are averse, the voters that persevere are the motivated ones, the ones that really care and the polling shows there is a big gap in perseverance and caring and motivation between the republicans and the democrats this year. so i think in pennsylvania and ohio and virginia, t

, mitt romney goes to cincinnati and defiance, ohio not too many people have heard of. president obama's going to the big cities because the big cities have more democrats in them. more democrats, more african-americans, more latinos, more lbig city mayors who support him and get out the vote strategies. and a lot of places with high unemployment. las vegas he helped get the high employment telling people don't bring your conventions and business meetings to las vegas, this is more a focus on democrats and african-americans and latinos than it is on, you know, high unemployment. >> dave: carl, there's been talk about lowering the course of the presidential debate and now an interview by the president in which he hurls a charge at mitt romney that he's a bull s-er. what's that about? and why is the president engaging in that language? >> first of all, it's part and parcel of a larger one. remember the president says the other day says mitt romney has third stage rom-nesia. and senior advisor called him a liar. what's interesting about the rolling stone interview lives in austin, where i
